Typhoon Bopha

I am thinking about sailing from Langkawi to Seattle this year. The departure window to get past the typhoons in this part of the world is May 2013.

The weather window for the North Pacific is also rather limited.

I need to sail from Langkawi to Japan in May + June 2013 and then from Japan to Seattle in July + August 2013.

It’s about 8,000 miles requiring about 80 days at sea in 120 days.

Rather intimidating.
